NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- A procedural motion to proceed having been filed this week, NSSF now expects that the U.S. Senate will have an initial vote to move forward with the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act, S. 2363 soon after senators return from the July 4th recess. We need your continued support.

The most significant such package of legislation in a generation, S.2363 protects the use of traditional ammunition, allows more flexibility for federal funds to be used to build and maintain ranges on public lands and ensures access to federal lands for hunting, shooting and other outdoor activities.

But make no mistake, anti-hunting and extremist environmental organizations are trying to derail this truly bipartisan effort, co-sponsored by more than 40 senators.

NSSF is urging hunters, target shooters and outdoor trade business owners to get on the phone to ask your senators to co-sponsor our industry’s top legislative priority. To protect your hunting and shooting heritage call 202-224-3121 and ask your senators to co-sponsor S.2363. You can also send emails to your senators.
